)-- Corey Frizzell and Mark Newton, Co-Producers of the Nashville based Lyrics for Lyrics Benefit Show, are proud to announce the official incorporation of the Lyric Frizzell Foundation, which benefits from the monthly show and serves to raise funds for childhood cancer research.
“Incorporating the Lyric Frizzell Foundation is one step closer to our ultimate goal of creating a regular ongoing music based concert series, establishing a foundation and partnering with Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in order to raise monies to further childhood cancer research in my daughter Lyric’s name, whom also suffers from a rare aggressive form of Leukemia. I think that it’s perfect timing, being that it’s also childhood cancer awareness month. We have some exciting things in the works and more to come.” – Corey Frizzell
The September 20th Lyrics for Lyric Benefit Show will be the tenth installment of the monthly benefit concert series at Roosters TX Style BBQ & Steakhouse, located at 123 12th Avenue North, Nashville, TN. 37203 and hosted by Mark Newton, IBMA Award winning Stylist/ Musician and one of today's most respected interpreters of bluegrass music. Each month is jam packed with Nashville's best established talent in the Country, Bluegrass, Americana and Roots genres to benefit the Lyric Frizzell Foundation, named after two year old Lyric Alana Frizzell whom was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of Leukemia at 10 months old.
The Lyrics for Lyric show began as the brain child of Picks Nashville owner’s Wade and Tina Johnson in November of 2010 to raise money and offset costs incurred while the Frizzell family lived at the Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital during Lyric’s chemo treatment. The creative monocure, Lyrics for Lyric was the design of Tina. Starting in July of 2011 after the close of Picks Nashville the show was taken in a new direction by Co-Producer’s Corey Frizzell and Mark Newton with the intention of benefiting the childhood cancer research in the name of the Lyric Frizzell Foundation.
Past shows have featured such stars as Vince Gill, Jamie Johnson, Marty Raybon, Bo Bice, Ken Mellons, Chris Caskey, Carl Jackson, Trent Tomlinson, Claire Lynch, Cia Cheryholmes, Missy Raines, Larry Cordle, Jerry Salley, Michael Peterson, Whitney Duncan and Billy Yates. As the show has grown, so has the talent level and sponsorship support from companies such as TKL Cases, Double E Promotions, Rural Rhythm Records and Paige Capo.
